On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden, CoD World at War

November 11, 2008 -

The Orlando Sentinel reports that several members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will celebrate Veterans Day by gaming with U.S. troops stationed overseas.

Pro vs. G.I. Joe, the nonprofit group which arranged the event, reports that Madden 09 and the brand-new Call of Duty: World at War will be the weapons of choice. Tamps Bay CB Phillip Buchanon, LB Cato June, TE Alex Smith and CB Aqib Talib will take on service personnel in Germany, Japan, Kuwait and a secret Middle-east location to be revealed during the match.

UPDATE: Activision deserves some kudos here as well. In a press release the publisher points out that it supplied CoD:WaW for today's event and will continue to do so for future Pro vs. G.I. Joe matchups.

Out of curiosity... when you downed an officer, did you immediately go in for the teabag? film izle

Re: On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden,

uh oh wheres JT to claim that now those soldiers are going to be killing machines! oh wait.. they were TRAINED to be that way... damn.... well one more lost for him. Well that was a fast one.

kinda funny though since JT claims to "support our troops" but then condemns anyone who plays games... and i can't think of anyone during my time that didn't play games (mostly Halo, Wolfenstein, and need for speed)

and yes i know he's outta the picture (sorta) but i still enjoy the random kick to the groin :)

heh reminds me of the tournaments my squad used to hold, enlisted vs commissioned. Voted for the game and almost always ended up in Halo 2... mostly since we had more copies of that than any other game.

oh.. and when we weren't forced to forfit due to having to get back to work (cheap arse officers cheat IMO) we usually won :)

Heh, I would never have thought of this kind of event myself, but it sounds like it will be fun for those involved.

Brad GlasgowWhy would he say the company lies about getting abuse? Oh, because people don't abuse GG?08/29/2015 - 10:38am

Goth_SkunkDespite not being a fan of fighting games I had to check out that R Mika trailer. Loved it. Still won't buy the game though, on account of Isuckatstreetfighteritis.08/29/2015 - 2:42am
MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am

Sora-Chantime to take up a hobby? maybe messing around in GIMP to make wallpapers? use qCAD to design somethin? open Blender and stare at it for a couple hours trying to figure what does what?08/28/2015 - 6:41pm
Big PermAlso, yes. I've been spamming the shoutbox. I don't have much going on today, don't judge me08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Big PermThanks, but yeah. Not sure I wanna drop that kind of cash :P I don't even mind the sound quality of my krakens, it just hurts to wear em after a couple hours.08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Sora-Chan@Big Perm: I'm a bit of a fan of the Omega Recon3D headset from SoundBlaster. Though it is a bit expensive.08/28/2015 - 2:36pm
Big PermI actually need to look into a new headset. I have those green razer krakens and I would not suggest them. Though maybe they're better for people without glasses08/28/2015 - 11:32am
